We live in a place surrounded by water. Ocean, lakes, rivers, and an exceptional amount of rain. Considering the likelihood our kids are in/near water at least once every day, we decided to bite the bullet and enroll them in swimming lessons, an hours drive both ways.
It was so worth it. Both of our kids went from being life jacket dependent, to being confident that they CAN swim. It was amazing to watch the transformation over the last two weeks – they both moved up three levels. Driving home today, I got more than a few complaints that our lessons were done. They didn’t want it to end, but I am certainly glad the two hours on the road every day is finished for now!
We’ll definitely do this again. Great job, Little Swimmers! Time to go jump in a lake…or river.
